Shoreline Restortaion

It's winter on Matthews Lake, but this is the time to start planning for the spring. And in particular, for those who are participating in the (soon to be approved) Shoreline Restoration Grant which provides funds for shoreline buffers to protect lake quality and control erosion. During our Labor Day weekend meeting, Linda Anderson, from Washburn County Lakes & River Association (WCLRA) who did restoration on her own property on Shell Lake, shared information about why and how along with plant ideas. This is important information for all property owners, so check out her excellent presentation here. If you have questions about the grant project contact Dick Howard.

Save the date for the next MLA meeting: Saturday, May 31, 2021, 10 a.m., Davidson’s Cabin, north side of lake,
